Here’s your handy guide to what’s open and what’s not in Calgary this Canada Day.


Golf Course

All City of Calgary golf courses (and driving ranges!) will be open this July 1 — making for the perfect chance to check out the newly opened McCall Lake.

Outdoor Pools

Depending on the weather, one of Calgary’s many outdoor pools would make for the perfect spot to post up to end off the long weekend!

Check out a list of locations and hours here.

Most spray parks and wading pools

Outdoor pools full? No worries! Head over to one of Calgary’s spray parks to cool down — and, more importantly, tire the kids out.

City landfills

If you’re planning on getting some housework done this long weekend, odds are you’ll have some junk that you need to get rid of. East Calgary landfill will be open both Sunday and Monday, Spyhill landfill will be closed on both days, and Shepard landfill will only be open on Monday, July 1.


All rec centres

… With the exception of Southland Leisure Centre, which will be open from 11 am to 5 pm.

North Mount Pleasant and Wildflower Arts Centres

Calgary Soccer Centre

Though you’ll be able to take to the pitch if you booked in advance!

Arenas and athletic parks

Again, those who booked in advance will still be able to play.

All City of Calgary administrative buildings

This includes city hall.

Some roads

Traffic around downtown Calgary this Canada Day could get a little messy, given that crews will be hard at work on street repairs that have completely closed the intersection of 17th Avenue and 14 Street SW from 8 pm on Friday, June 28 to 5 am on Tuesday, July 2.

Here are the detours to take until work is complete:

  • 19th Avenue between 14th Street and 15 Street SW
  • 14a Street between 19th Avenue and 17th Avenue SW
  • 15th Street between 19th Avenue and 16th Avenue SW
  • 16th Avenue between 14th Street and 15th Street SW

Partial closures will also be seen on parts of Glenmore Trail, Macleod Trail/Anderson Road, Woodpark Boulevard access at Anderson road, 7th Street SW, 3rd Street SW, 101st Street SW, 8th Avenue SW, Crowchild trail, 36th Street NE, and Sheriff King Street over the long weekend.

Full details on these closures can be found here.

Calgary Transit

On Monday, July 1, buses and trains around the city will be operating at a Sunday level of service.

A few bus routes will also need to make some detours once the Centre Street Bridge is closed (for the dazzling fireworks show) — details on detours can be found here.
